Alcohol, marijuana and ecstasy each have very different effects on sexuality. They range from attraction to sudden desire to sexual dysfunction.
Alcohol, marijuana and ecstasy are among the most abused substances among young people. Although there has been extensive research into the fact that they would tend to lead to risky sexual behavior, few studies have focused on the specific sexual effects of these different substances.
A recent study has shown that, compared to marijuana, alcohol and ecstasy are more strongly associated with an exacerbation of perceived sexual feelings, including attraction, sexual desire, and trust in society.
The results of this alcohol study are consistent with previous research on the social effects of alcohol use, which triggers increased feelings of self-acceptance and social anxiety.
Compared to alcohol and marijuana, ecstasy - also known as the "love drug" - is associated with increased sexual intensity, longer duration of intercourse and a higher intensity of smoking. orgasm, according to a comparative study published in Journal of Psychology and Sexuality.
Paradoxically, while alcohol and ecstasy can increase sexual desire, these substances hinder the sexual performance of men. Alcohol can numb the body, which can delay or prevent orgasm: impotence is common, despite the body's increasing sensitivity to drugs.
Beyond sensations and physical performance, the question of lucidity comes into play.
Post-sexual regrets remain the most common after alcohol consumption (31%) compared to ecstasy (13%) and marijuana (7%). In short, for your well being, even sexual, do not hesitate to leave aside this kind of substance.
